  • How the Democrats Collude to Enable Voter Fraud

    One of the most pernicious phenomena of modern times is the collusive lawsuit. This is how it works: a left-wing organization sues a government agency that is also controlled by the left. The lawsuit alleges that the agency is obliged to do something that the agency would like to do, but the Democrats can’t get it passed. Then the parties–supposedly adverse, but actually in collusion–“settle” the case by having the agency agree to do what it wanted to do all along. If all goes well, a court enters an order enforcing the settlement. So the net effect is that a...

    As president, Biden would replicate California’s repressive AB5 law. “Last year California passed AB5 affording gig workers protections and benefits like a minimum wage and overtime pay,” Joe Biden tweeted on Tuesday. “Now, gig economy giants are trying to gut the law and exempt their workers. It’s unacceptable. I urge Californians to vote no on the initiative this November.” The initiative, qualified for the ballot on May 22, establishes criteria for determining whether rideshare drivers are “employees” or “independent contractors.” AB5 also targets freelance writers and independent contractors in dozens of professions, including health care. Joe Biden was all in...

    It was the politics of pandemic that took over Real Time with Bill Maher tonight with Michael Moore as the marquee guest. “The only way they are going to pull it off is if he’s able to cancel the election or postpone it,” the Fahrenheit 9/11 director said of Donald Trump’s chances at the ballot box in November against Joe Biden after this COVID-19 spring that has seen almost 100,000 deaths so far from the respiratory ailment. “I’m certain that’s what’s going on in his head right now,” Moore worried as he has before, pledging that people will need to...

    Washington state Governor Jay Inslee is determined to wipe out restaurants in his state. The governor will require restaurants to keep a log, including contact information, on every customer who dines at their establishment. Inslee also wants all restaurants to open at half capacity. Say good-bye to dine-in restaurants! Inslee wanted to be president. ABC reported: Restaurants in Washington state will be required to keep a log of each dine-in customer to facilitate contact tracing during phase two of the state’s coronavirus reopening plans. As part of the requirements, the log must be maintained for 30 days and must include...
  • Chaos.’ ‘Fraud.’ Democrats Once Warned Against Voting Changes They Now Call For

    “We’re right to be on guard against voter fraud,” Barack Obama once said. “Voter fraud would impinge on our democracy. We don’t want folks voting that shouldn’t be voting. We all agree on that. Let’s stipulate to that, as the lawyers say.” What do those Democrat lawyers say now? They say a pandemic is a prime opportunity to strip away ballot security protections that Democrats claimed they used to believe in. Lawsuits brought by left-wing groups across the country would create the very chaos and fraud Democrats once warned against. “They’re talking about people mailing in their ballots. Do you...
  • Democrats' coronavirus bill would undermine states' voter ID requirement

    Tucked inside House Democrats’ new coronavirus bill is language that would create a loophole in states’ voter ID requirements, allowing people to cast ballots without having to prove who they are. While the crux of the bill, revealed Tuesday, is a massive injection of taxpayer aid for states, localities and federal agencies dealing with the virus, Democrats also tackled some of their long-standing political goals. One section of the bill would require states to allow at least 15 days of in-person early voting before Election Day this year, and to also allow voting by mail for any reason, overriding states...

    The bill is titled "H.R. 6666 — COVID-19 Testing, Reaching, And Contacting Everyone," or the TRACE Act. It aims to provide $100 billion in funding for the Health and Human Service Department for the purpose of "diagnostic testing for COVID–19, to trace and monitor the contacts of infected individuals, and to support the quarantine of such contacts ..." The bill also says that it will provide, "as necessary, testing [for] individuals and ... services related to testing and quarantine at their residences."

    A federal appeals court on Wednesday backed a lower court’s ruling that a Kansas voter identification law crafted by former Secretary of State Kris Kobach is unconstitutional and violates the National Voter Registration Act. The law heralded by Kobach took effect in 2013 and mandates that people provide documentation proving U.S. citizenship before being allowed to register to vote. The decision from the 10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals comes after a federal district court struck down the law on the same grounds. The judges said the state had failed to provide convincing arguments in its appeal that Kansas was...

    A veto made by Governor Andy Beshear opposing a voter ID law was defeated in the state legislature. Lawmakers in both the Kentucky House and Senate voted to override Beshear’s veto of SB 2. Republican state lawmakers called the proposed voter ID law one of their top priorities at the beginning of the 2020 legislative session. Proponents said it would increase confidence in the state’s elections by preventing fraud, but Democrats are claim that problem doesn’t exist, adding the bill would keep legal voters from heading to the polls. Voters would need a photo ID to cast a ballot in-person...

Advertisement By far, the most high-profile of the bills Beshear vetoed in its entirety was Senate Bill 2, which requires voters to present a photo ID at their polling location.

I’m proud to sign these bills into law.” Northam signed legislation allowing early voting 45 days prior to an election without even stating an excuse.

    The Wuhan Virus “crisis” offers both threats and opportunities; but these threats need not be disasters for our liberty. In fact, the august pronouncements of Doctor Anthony Fauci have given us an opportunity to not let this “crisis” go to waste. If handled properly we can use it to kill mail in voting, at least for next November. The “crisis” narrative for killing our economy and embarrassing President Trump with a never ending economic shut down is falling apart. The voices demanding, we reopen our economy are growing louder. There is now a reasonable chance that the “back” of this...

    WASHINGTON - A voter initiative led by Michelle Obama announced support Monday for making it easier for people to register to vote and cast ballots during the coronavirus pandemic. When We All Vote, a nonpartisan voting initiative, says Americans should have greater access to voting by mail, early in-person voting and online voter registration. The announcement follows last week’s primary election in Wisconsin, where thousands of people waited hours in line - without protective gear and in defiance of orders to stay home - after the state Supreme Court overturned the governor’s order to postpone the vote as more than...

    Partisan hack and ABC News reporter Jon Karl asked President Trump about mail-in voting at the daily coronavirus press briefing last week. Karl and his Democrat colleagues are using the current crisis to push for mail-in voting. This is something Democrats desperately want to make into law because they know it’s easier to cheat that way. President Trump told Karl “no” because people cheat with mail-in voting. Jon Karl: Do you think every single state in this country should be prepared for mail-in voting? President Trump: No, because I think a lot of people cheat with mail-in voting. I think...

    The legal and political battles in Wisconsin, along with the gripping images of voters donning facial masks and gloves standing in hours-long, socially-distanced lines to cast ballots Tuesday, could be just a preview of what lies ahead, as states across the country anticipate the lingering impact of the pandemic on the presidential election in November. Election officials from both parties are already sounding the alarm about the need for more resources to ensure health safety and expand alternatives to in-person and day-of voting. They also anticipate protracted partisan fights over what the general election could and should look like in...

    With concerns mounting over how the country can conduct elections during a pandemic and Democrats pressing for alternatives to in-person voting, President Donald Trump has begun pushing a false argument that has circulated among conservatives for years - that voting by mail is a recipe for fraud. “Mail ballots, they cheat,” Trump said at the White House on Tuesday afternoon. “Mail ballots are very dangerous for this country because of cheaters. They go collect them. They are fraudulent in many cases. They have to vote. They should have voter ID, by the way.” Studies have shown that all forms of...

    Kentucky Gov. Andy Beshear (D) on Friday vetoed a bill mandating residents of the state show a government-issued form of identification before voting. In his veto message, Beshear hammered Republicans for trying to push legislation that would “create an obstacle” to voting and tackle a “problem that does not exist,” referring to GOP-fueled claims of voter fraud. “I am vetoing Senate Bill 2 because the provisions of the law would create an obstacle to the ability of Kentuckians to exercise their right to vote, resulting in fewer people voting and undermining our democracy. Furthermore, no documented evidence of recent voter...
